McAfee, Norton or what else? I need basic support and

remote access from services from time to time. I'm fairly satisfied with M., just checking around for other companies.

Thanks in advance.

1. I've been quite satisfied with Malwarebytes. Got it from a big law firm.[Should be available online]

5. F-Secure is a highly rated product.

They offer a really great package and have been around forever. Most people have never heard of them, but they were focused mainly on business users for a long time.

The first time I ever used them was way back in the 90's at UofArkansas in Fayetteville. Back then they were known as F-Prot and were free.

Here is a link to their page for their Total Protect package...it is kind of spendy but it includes a lot of features like VPN and ID protection.

I am not affiliated with F-Secure in any way, just an ex-IT manager who used to handle security for the companies I worked for.

Here is a link to a page that tests all anti-virus products. It is the go to testing agency as they are not paid or supported by any particular company, they are independent.
